Has anyone ever used 'Priceline' to get airline tickets to Belize? We're arriving in Dec and I can't find tickets for under $900RT. Any suggestions?

I'm flying from JFK in NYC in 2 weeks. We got a flight for $530 R/T, with a connection in Miami. I don't know how close to Miami you are but it is worth checking into. A drive there would get you on a direct flight for probably less than what I paid. We are flying American Airlines. December is a long time away don't jump into such a expensive fare.

Thanks to all for the replies. I too thought $900 from Orlando was "pricey" But that is the going rate. We'll probably fly out of Miami, but that to is still at $750! Go figure?! I still have plenty of time to look. I saw some fares on that looked interesting. I keep an eye on that.

Keep checking daily. My flight from Chicago to Belize was $960 one day on American and $533 the next day. You have a lot of time to plan. I'd wait it out a couple of months. Also, Orbitz has some pretty good fares.

Wait to book until about 3 months out. We booked our April trip last June... but everyone waited until around Dec//Jan to start booking air as it stayed about $900 RT until then (from Atlanta). The sales dont usually hit until about 3-4 months out. Just keep an eye on them each month and they will eventually drop.

Unfortunately Delta doesnt fly to Belize or most all of us would have cashed in some FF miles instead! opefully they'll be flying there by next time we go.

Try "Exitos"...they are a Latin American Travel Company from Colorado and have always gotten us the best deals on flights (they have a web site)...good luck! Also, the security lines at the Belize airport are less of a problem than in US but they still hand search each piece of luggage thoroughly!!

Orlando to Belize $380. That doesn't include taxes, so plan maybe $450.

My brother has had good luck with priceline but I never have. I tried, ocasionally came across this mysterious $400 fare but it would never "sell" when I tried to book. But at least I discovered much better fares were available leaving during the week, Tues, Wed or Thurs. End up going directly to COntinental. RT from Philly $509 + taxes. BUt a 6:50 AM flight yikes. Soooo with security checkin, drive to airport that means waking up some the night before. hehe

Re: airline tickets - 02/22/02 08:55 PM laugh, but we came home from orlando last month, and arriving 1.5 hrs before the return flight, gave us about 15 minutes to RUN to the gate, check in and get on the plane. hubby was searched twice and his briefcase completely dismantled.

phila airport was not as bad.

Re: airline tickets - 02/22/02 09:36 PM

Jane you're right. Last time I did an early flight out of Philly it wasn't to bad and the last time I went through Orlando I ended up spending the night. Didn't make the 15 minute run to the next gate. [Linked Image]

Besides I don't mind being up at an O dark:thirty if it means going on vacation. Kinda seems like how the adventure should begin. The return is worse [Linked Image] hehe gets in a 1AM and then work in a few hours. weeee but who cares bout that now. [Linked Image]

One of my best friends is married to a Delta pilot. They tell me to look for Delta to start flying Atl/BC this summer. Hope to see that one!!

Jane, yep well I say Philly cause know one knows the suburbs. The burbs are just "spreadin out far and wide" just like in Green Acres. [Linked Image]

I live in Chesterbrook near KoP and my girlfriend a tad further west. Both transplants. But I've been here 7 years, long enough to become an Eagles fan: for better and for worse. A lot mo better the past 2 seasons than the first 5.hehe [Linked Image]

Hey sweetjane, I just read your post and saw that you lived in Glenside. So did my mom! When did you live there? It really is a small world.
